Pilot Review: Dirty Sexy Money

Dirty Sexy Money
ABC PILOT

Peter Krause, Donald Sutherland, Samaire Armstrong, Billy Baldwin
Seth Gabel, Glenn Fitzgerald, Natalie Zea, and Victoria Pratt


Premise: In this Dynasty-meets-SixFeetUnder drama, lawyer Nick George (Krause) takes on the financial management of high society's most powerful and recognizeable family after his father's plane crashes to his death.

Review: All right, now we're getting somewhere. This is really good! Dirty Sexy Money is all that its name implies. It's chock full of scandal, secrets, and sex, and it has a phenomenal ensemble cast. Surprisingly, this pilot has a lot of heart and promises to humanize the demons of fame and fortune. I also just love how it ties in aspects (and real life actors) of our own American power-families.

Peter Krause. Man, first leading man that I was really excited for from the start and continued to be excited for throughout the pilot. Not only is he sexy beyond belief, but he just carries with him this relatable human quality that allows him to do some perhaps morally questionable things and yet you still know in your heart that he's a boyscout.

Donald Sutherland. Ooh, what a phenomenal actor, it gives me chills up my spine. His character is just so decisively evil and yet a perfect gentleman all in the same breath. Some things only Mr. Sutherland could pull off and this might be the role he was born to play, the ultimate patriarch.

Samaire Armstrong. While I lit up to see her on the screen again, I have to admit that she fell kinda flat. Yes, her character is slightly vapid and empty (ala Paris Hilton), I still didn't enjoy her performance. Hopefully she can step it up when the show is picked up to series.

Billy Baldwin. Oh, how I love the Baldwins...its uncanny how recognizeable they are. I wasn't really aware of Billy's work up to now, but his performance in this certainly got my attention. It seems that while he is the family gold boy (successful, married with kids), he might be in love with a lovely transvestite (ala Alexis Arquette).

Seth Gabel. He was so my favorite! His character reminded me a bit of a charicature of Pete Doherty (Kate Moss's husband/boyfriend) if Pete was charming and hot and effortless cool. His character is just so fabulous, a rebellious drug addict and spoiled brat who knows his own power and influence. Plus, he's just a trip to watch.

Glenn Fitzgerald. His character is genius, a "man of god" who is certainly the most corrupt out of the whole bunch. Glenn has this cool, no-apologies kind of corruption that is just very intriguing to watch. I was really impressed with him.

Natalie Zea. I liked her. She has this sweet, almost regal, yet slightly trashy thing that is perfect for her character...I don't know how else to describe it.

Victoria Pratt. Eh, she just seemed like a poor man's Kate Winslett to me, and I didn't like it. I felt like she didn't really bring anything new and interesting to the table, plus she kept doing this lip-pursing thing when she talked that made me want to scream.

Other supporting cast members worth mentioning are Jill Clayburgh (the matriarch), Zoe McClellan (the wife), and Candis Cayne (the trannie). All of whom did a great job as well.

Hi!
You may probably be very curious to know how one can manage to receive high yields on investments.
There is no need to invest much at first.
You may begin to get income with a sum that usually is spent
for daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one project for several years,
and I'm ready to share my secrets at my blog.

Please visit blog and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I earn 1000-2000 per daily now.
